OUR MODEL: PROACTIVE CARE

HOW IS CARE DELIVERED?

PROACTIVE CARE = EARLY CARE = LIVES SAVED

1 : PROACTIVE SEARCH

Community Health Workers (CHWs) proactively search for patients through door-to-door home visits to connect them with care early.

2 : DOORSTEP CARE

CHWs provide an integrated package of life-saving health care services in the home, rapidly diagnosing and treating the most common illnesses.

3 : RAPID-ACCESS CLINICS

CHWs identify patients who need more complex care, and quickly accompany them to capacitated government-run health centers, where Muso builds infrastructure, trains staff, and provides technical support to ensure quality universal care delivery
without fees.

 

WHO LEADS CARE DELIVERY?

 COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS (CHWs) 

In the Proactive Care model, Muso’s front-line changemakers are our Community Health Workers, who work within strengthened public health systems. CHWs go door-to-door to search for patients and connect them to life-saving services in the home or the clinic early.

WHAT CARE IS DELIVERED?

CHWs provide a package of health care services in the home, including:

 

CLINICAL REFERALS

Muso CHWs triage care for more severe illnesses, and specific patients' needs, to capacitated,  rapid-access government clinics and hospitals. Patients access all care without fees.

MALNUTRITION 

PREVENTION & TREATMENT

Muso CHWs provide proactive diagnosis and treatment for children with malnutrition. Every child is tested monthly for malnutrition, and those who test positive receive treatment and proactive recovery support in the home or clinic.

HOW ARE CHWs MANAGED & SUPPORTED? 

 

360° SUPERVISION MODEL

As CHWs deliver care at the doorstep, dedicated supervisors provide regular performance management support through Muso's 360º Supervision model. A study found that Community Health Workers who received 360° Supervision achieved significant improvements in the speed, quality, and coverage of care over time. Muso is providing technical assistance to support our government partners in Mali and Côte d’Ivoire to scale the model nationwide.

1: GROUP SUPERVISION 

monthly meetings between a CHW Supervisor and their CHWs.

2: SOLICITATION 

of patients' feedback.

3: OBSERVATION
